I have my kids this weekend, so sorry so short. Like you guys really read the words anyways…I know, right to the photos! Yea..I do it too sometimes 🙂
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
You guys and gals make this all worth it. I don’t have the money to advertise, but through your awesome sharing I’m seeing more new faces, faster, than ever before. I wish I could thank you all individually, but one problem is I don’t speak all those languages, and two, I’m not sure I’d live long enough to write all those emails 🙂 Thanks for chacking out my hobby here and I’ll be forever in you debt…debts..manI should have paid more attention in English class *grin*
Hey Folks! Spent a good part of the day getting things packed up and almost finished up the Stampedes and Long Las rifle. It was still humid as all hell, but I got a lot done inside where it was still pretty dry. It will get better and the month moves along, which will be a great thing for paint drying! If you have any interest in doing a commissioned piece, feel free to contact me. I’ll be ready for the next batch of stuff later this week. Thanks and enjoy the WIP photos from today!
I did another one of these Otter Boxes for a photographer friend on DeviantArt.com. I did it for almost cost, mainly because they’ll be able to tell me how well the finish puts up with daily use. I hope it does well so I can offer some other colors.
Recently I did a little Buck Rogers-styled squirt gun for my Dad. For my Brother I decided to do something along the same lines, but this time around I went with a tiny cap gun revolver. I guess I just think the little guns are cool to display without taking up much room. I’m sure they appreciate that aspect of the gifts 🙂
The first one of these Lanard X8s that I did got a lot of attention, probably due to the rarity of the gun. These are tough to find in stores, especially in states that don’t have the chains where they’re sold. You can find them online, but they’re usually marked up 2-300% (retail is about 9-10.00). This is also the same for the Lanard X6. Here’s some WIP photos showing the removal of the rear hammer guard. It takes a bit of patience to get them shaved off without a lot of rough edges, but if you take your time it can come out looking pretty cool.
Sanded and then filled in the recess where “Made in China” was stamped. I also filled the mold dimples. After all this is sanded and made stock looking I will take the guns apart to paint the trigger, barrel, and also the cocking mechanism under the handle. That should be tomorrow if the filler has dried completely.
Thanks again for visiting – email me if you need anything!
Finally got the custom decals finished for the gun. The new owner is very please and I have to say I like how it all pulled together. Sorry for the short post, but it is almost “morning” and I gotta get some rest 🙂 Have a safe 4th of July and I’ll be back soon with a lot of nifty new stuff!
ok, just a few extra. You guys have been good about the slow posts! 🙂
still working on this one..
Quick update! Got the initial masking done on the second Mass Effect inspired stampede and it’s ready for round two 🙂 There’s lots to do, so don’t be worried about the colors right now!
